Nordic Walking - summer © José Crespo

Nordic Walking

Leysin has 3 groomed circuit trails for Nordic Walking in summer and in winter. This gentle sport is accessible all year round in any format. Mapped out and specifically designed for Nordic Walking, the different trails which cut through field and forest are such an enjoyable way to drink in the pure mountain air.

The Nordic Walking trails offer a varying degree of difficulty encouraging as many people as possible to use them. Setting out from the ice rink in the lower village the 3 routes distinguish themselves principally in terms of length (4,8km, 8,1km and 15,4km).

Though mainly used in summer, they can also be navigated in winter. It’s not so well known but walking in the snow is also a wonderful sporting and leisure experience.

Along the way, signposts give advice as to walking techniques. And throughout the year, qualified monitors offer their services to help walkers make the right moves to perfect their technique.
